Tech integration is becoming more and more common. Having an iphone, ipad, apple watch, and a MacBook that are all synched is a not an uncommon thing. The potential to link the POS system of your business to your network of devices only makes sense from a convenience and management standpoint.
With mobile devices being in the hands of almost everyone in the U.S., it makes sense to integrate business tech into the suite of devices running on iOS or Android. A mobile credit card reader is another thing that could potentially help you process payments away from your business. There are card readers that plug directly into your mobile device, and through an app can process payments and send your client an email receipt. This can all be tied directly to your instore POS system and the information will be treated as a part of your in-store sales records.
A mobile POS card reader can provide a similar service but is not quite as integrated with your mobile devices. However, it has the capability to be connected to your in-store system, like the SmartSwipe POS. This connectivity can give you the ability to travel with your business and accept payment at events or at trade shows. This provides your customers the convenience of not having to worry about carrying cash to make purchases with at such events. This will give you a step up above a lot of the other vendors at an event.
Technology has changed the way businesses approach traveling, and even the way mobile businesses deal with payments like food trucks. This kind of technology expands your business’s earning potential a lot if you are in a mobile business. This alone is reason enough to consider using a mobile based processing service, especially considering how common smartphones are in today’s market.
